Colwyn bay is a pretty seaside resort with a long promenade running along the beautiful beaches from Old Colwyn round to Penrhyn Bay, giving access to slipways for fishing, sailing and jet skiing, and also to the pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea. There are a number of award-winning beaches on this stretch of the coast, ideal for sunbathing and beach games.

The shopping area of Colwyn Bay is close to the renowned Welsh Mountain Zoo and a number of golf courses, not to mention a leisure centre, tennis courts and an athletics stadium. It is also a stone's throw from Snowdonia and the Isle of Anglesey, ideal for cycling and walking.
